BikeMS - a ride to raise funds for Multiple Sclerosis Research

Each year, many of us ride to raise funds for a cause that's important to us. We have formed a team and signed up for BikeMS to raise funds to fight MS and help those who have it. Please join us!

The Ride - a challenging 100 mile day (there's a great 65 mile option ) in the beautiful south Willamette Valley between Salem and Corvallis. Very low traffic, wonderful scenery, great ride support and a change from the usual Portland area rides. The event is on August 3rd. To learn more, see the BikeMS website:

The Goal - The National MS Society asks each rider to raise at least $250 in donations to combat this disease. Robin Smith, John Hall, Meredith Peake and I have committed to this exceeding this goal. We would love to have more members on our team!

Please Join our Team, Sign up for the Ride, or make a donation: You may have friends or relatives with MS, and not know it yet.  Apparently there is some connection to the horrible high rates of MS and the Northwest.  We are participating in Bike MS to raise money to make a difference and need your help.

Dollar by dollar, Bike MS is changing lives. That's why we registered for Bike MS and why I'm asking you to register for Bike MS and join us.

Your donation supports critical funds to support local programs and cutting-edge research. Your donation puts us closer to realizing our promise to STOP MS in its tracks, RESTORE lost function and END MS forever. Ending MS means no one will receive an MS diagnosis again. Every dollar helps. Every connection matters.

Please support us, make a donation, or better yet - sign up for the ride, and join our team! We greatly appreciate your support. Our BikeMS Team is the Columbia Willamette Meetups. Just go to the link below to donate, sign up for the ride, or join our team.

    I'll be there as well but under another team name. Adam and I are both on the committee for Bike MS. Thank you all for helping us raise as much as possible. My wife has MS so the more participants the better. Again Thank You. We'll see you there.

    We're going to try and get together Friday evening, and maybe saturday morning. Even if we don't all ride the same speed, it would be fun to get a group shot at the start.

      I'll email my cell number to some of you and maybe we can look for each other when we get there. I'll send it to everybody without a purple unicorn.

    my husband and I are already doing the MS ride, I was diagnosed with MS 20 years ago, but I keep working out and riding,it keeps my body functioning well, but yes there are higher cases of MS in Oregon and Washington then anywhere in the country, some doctors think it is because of the weather and the lack of vit D,but nobody really knows for sure.........

      Lisa, that's amazing. 20 years and still riding. I hope we get together at the BikeMS event, or better yet on a ride before that. Good luck fundraising.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
